If I ever get an android phone, it will be Samsung and nothing else. They nearly perfected S6 and made all other android phones not even worth considering. Although this time I might go with the ios...
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015I bought all galaxy S since the 1st one in 2010. That microsd part is a let down for sure, but... moreNon removable battery!! thats a BIG NO NO for me. I'm not gonna buy this phone for this reason alone. On my Galaxy S4 I go through 3 batteries in a day sometimes... just so many pics to take and a lot of apps just consume a lot of battery. Its very convenient to change the battery instead of missing out on a conference and keep waiting in a long queue to charge up the phone.
Extremely disappointed in the missing sd card slot. I've seen some people comment that it should be fine since they will offer 32/64/128 internal memory. I only have one question, at what cost? And if I can find a 64GB SD card for one price and a 128GB for another and the difference is minimal, is that the price structure Samsung will use? Probably not, in fact you will pay an outrageous premium. I'm also very disappointed that I can't remove the battery. As opposed to some, I have had to remove the battery however infrequently, I prefer the option. I'm also disappointed that they believe that we bought their phone in the first place because it was basically an iPhone clone. We bought for the exact opposite reason, because we had the flexibility to make these changes, like swapping out sd cards.
adpk, 02 Mar 2015Ahh i think that amd not us.. some contries doesnt have the 64 or 128 gb s6 ( samsung policy))... moreGive Samsung some time, the phones just got announced yesterday and they won't be available before next month.
In my country, i've seen only 16gb versions of all previous Galaxy S, never more capacity. So i think we are in same case and Samsung will really make available at least 32 and 64gb versions everywhere.
For removing battery, yes there are many reasons. But i think i'm not the only Galaxy S *real* owner who says, i never need to remove it from any of my Galaxy. Those phones just never crash to that point. If battery is empty, i just plug the charger. And with S6, in 10 minutes you get 4hrs of usage.
You got chargers everywhere nowadays, in your car, at work, on any machine with a USB port. Microusb is a more than common standard. So heavy user or not, it's a simple matter of organization.
As someone was pointing out : it's even clever to walk around with a powerbank than an additional battery, since that you have to turn off your phone or be interrupted and starting all over again.
The real bad part is if you damage the battery outside of the warranty. Because within the warranty's time, a non removable battery will be free of replacement by Samsung unlike removable ones.
1000 usd for what? We cannot remove anymore the battery, we cannot put the SD? And also the phone have shity battery life and where is IP67????????????? No Water and dust Resistant??? WTF...
Tatoo, 02 Mar 2015OMG,how can u people complain about a 64 giga memory on a phone,even 32 is more than enough,wh... morewell to be honest if someone takes a lot of pictures it takes up a lot of space quickly. my s5 is a 16gb and 5gb is lost to the firmware then you have apps etc. leaving me with just 3gb left. that deosnt even include my pics. i have a 64gb sd card and i have just 30gb left on it from all of my pics and vids some are in 4k. which you have to remember are incredibly huge. memeory on these phones can get eaten up quickly. so i have a total of 75gb only 45 of it is already used lol.

I have yet to meet someone who degraded its battery.
It's the only "normal" phone which can do whole day with no additional charge whatever you throw at it.
And anyway, now external powerbanks are common with far more capacity than an additional battery.
adpk, 02 Mar 2015Ahh i think that amd not us.. some contries doesnt have the 64 or 128 gb s6 ( samsung policy))... moreSorry man but S6 is not SDcard supported. It has no slot, only built-in memory is available.

Removing battery just when flashed custom roms... i think therw is soooo many reasons to remove a batterry.. 128 gb s6 is vwry expensive and we cant buy it or 64 gb but we can purxhase 16 GB or 32GB s6 and buy an sd card of 32 GB that costs 20$$ and save 300$$ by avoiding 128 GB s6... so if u tell me that this phone only for rich people i have toaay that this is apple policy and not samsung policy...
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015No sd card, no expanded battery option. Might as well buy a crapple phone.Now things can never be as bad as that to have to lower your standards to go to iPhone.
Anonymous, 02 Mar 2015I bought all galaxy S since the 1st one in 2010. That microsd part is a let down for sure, but... moreAlso because I use so much I have a spare battery at home and in glovebox and have had to use them many times.
No biggie to me if it doesn't have an SD card. I back everything up to the cloud with Google anyway so that's irrelevant. However, I would like the removable battery, but then again it's not like I pull my battery out that often anyway!

no sd card slot and no removal battery...... F** this phone samsung :D
i dont agree, 02 Mar 2015SD card slot is not MUST HAVE. when you have an SD card larger then 16GB you have big problems... moreYou're very wrong because I have a 128gb card and countless videos, music, images apps etc and all works fine.
The only problems happen is with a lot of separate files flash memory does lag, but decent quality cards reduce that so isn't really a big issue.
Plus I just don't like the idea of spending huge amounts more for extra capacity like iPhone users have to do.

But between us, how many times you had to remove battery with all your galaxy's ?
The only times i removed battery, it was for flashing custom roms...

I recently purchased a few microsd cards 64gb outside of major online stores (means not amazon for example), and i noticed that all those cards are "defective" past 8gb filled.
Try the software h2testw from your computer to check your microsd and you will see.
Else, i have 3 real 64gb microsd with no problem for years in different devices.
